The House is voting on the debt ceiling bill Wednesday night, and both Republican and Democratic leaders in the House are claiming victories. What do they say and why do some insist the deal is problematic? Congressman Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) joins us to offer his perspective on the debt ceiling talks. We ask him how he plans to vote. We have the highlights from a Senate hearing on the Chinese Communist Party's dangerous influence. The Justice Department is suing the West Virginia governor's son and his family's coal mining business. The Department of Justice alleges his companies failed to pay fines for violating environmental regulations.
